The New York Giants' struggles with salary-cap room this offseason were well-documented. Right guard Chris Snee is trying to help. According to a league source, Snee has re-worked his contract twice since the beginning of August to help give the Giants more cap flexibility. Snee re-did his deal Aug. 5 to remove a punt-block incentive and save the team more than $1 million in cap space, and just recently converted $2 million of his 2011 salary into a signing bonus to save the team another $1.5 million.
Snee is entering the fourth year of a six-year, $41.25 million deal he signed with the Giants in the 2008 offseason. He has started every game for the Giants for the past six seasons and is regarded as one of the top guards in the NFL.
